      Response to Intervention is the practice of identifying the needs of struggling students and providing them focused instruction they need through varying levels of assistance ranging from assistance in the regular classroom to assistance in a special education program.

      Thank you Holly &  Alan  for clarifying what RTI stand for.
       
      Children have different levels of understanding.It also depends on how much interest the teacher takes in explaing the subject to the child.
      Maybe some take a longer time..............some are quick learners.
      RTI is an interesting concept.
       
      It is unfortunate that in India some teachers take extra classes at their homes after school hours and charge an extra fee for that too.

        We are still looking into a schedule for RTI- We already have an
        after school tutoring program that several of these students we have
        in our school are already assigned to-- but they won't come and
        parents don't make them stay. So that is why we are looking at way to
        provide this extra intervention to help them.

        I'm for it-- anything to help the kids. I will probably be involved
        in the intervention for reading in some aspect in the furture. My
        school is just trying to find a way to reach the kids in our already
        packed school day.

          ss, science, math, pe, art, band, chorus, etc...

          We should be having another meeting- so I'll let you all know what
          happened.
